A maximum of 55 degrees Celsius is recommended. Once these basics are done, check for hydraulic connections where you attach the dielectric connection, which in most cases comes with the heater. Seal, connect the drain valve and dedicated hose pipes for hot water outlets and cold water inlet. The next move is to go for the electric connection, where a dedicated circuit is used. Most of these processes will be self-explanatory. However, if you feel stuck or unsure, remember to wait for the heater repair expert to assist.
